USA Update 2021 Teacher Seminar (digital)

Teacher Seminar / Registration fee 10€ / Registration via our registration form


This teacher seminar will take place online via zoom.


In November 2020, Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris won the US presidency in a surprisingly narrow and highly contested election that revealed deep rifts in American society and politics. What challenges await the new administration and what are its priorities in foreign and domestic policy? Will the defeated Donald Trump continue to play a central role in American politics and will the Republican Party continue to follow him? What can the Biden administration do to overcome the division in American society? This talk will address these and other important issues. As usual, political humor and satirical videos will provide some comic relief.
